After I graduated from BITS Pilani with my Bachelors and integrated Masters, I was inspired to explore all possible options for me at, the corporate sector (at FICO), startup field (at GoZoomo) and academia (my current position at ISI), maintaining a constancy in field between all three. Thus, have garnered a lot of knowledge and experience in the sectors mentioned and have also learned the techniques of creating a symbiotic relationship between all three sectors of work. The common link that binds all my experiences has been in the field of data analysis, learning and signal processing (especially Biomedical signal and Image Processing). I know that a lot of students (especially fresh out of college) struggle to form a connection between the corporate, academia and startups, and I want to help them get informed about what is out there, so that they can choose which path to take on their own.
Junior Research Fellow, Indian Statistical Institute
Dec 2015 to Present
Junior Research Fellow in the DBT funded project,"Quantification of neural information and a subsequent coding scheme," in the Systems Science and Informatics Unit (SSIU). Simply put, I come up with new techniques and heuristics to analyse the EEG and ECoG data of an epileptic patient and detect (and try to predict with some probability) the onset and offset of epileptic seizures (especially temporal lobe seizures) automatically. I have used MATLAB to model the prototype and the 'sci-kit-learn' library in Python to implement the data analysis and learning algorithms after proof of concept.
Data Engineer, GoZoomo
Apr 2015 to Dec 2015
Created a system to analyse the data about the users, from the website and form a strategy to increase the conversion rate on the website and decrease CPC, CPA and drop-off rate. I created the system completely in a mix of Java and Python.
Software Developer, Fair Isaac Corporation
Jun 2014 to Mar 2015
I created a decision making platform (in a team of 8), using Java, Spring and Hibernate to make the backend, SenchaJS for the frontend and Core Java to make the decision algorithms.
